Wow!. I have never been charged.
Maybe Tony & Bill can chime in as I was going to fly in also.
Can you guys get a waiver? Otherwise, I suspect your attendance will be greatly impacted.
I will call the FBO for clarification and report back.

Update: I just talked to Sheltair at SPG.
$10 landing fee
$5 if you go to the restaurant.
Landing fee waived for 5 gals fuel.(5.84/gl, about 2.00/gl more than nearby airports)
No waivers for anyone, even if you park on the south ramp. They don't care. You land, you pay.
Not good for any fly-ins. They must have changed the policy when Sheltair took over.

Default Landing fee

I regret that the FBO is charging a landing fee even if you don't go to the restaurant. That kinda puts a damper on things. I had hoped that we could have some fly outs from there but it looks like the landing fee would present a problem.

We are planning on having meetings at the restaurant. Bill Northwall and I spoke to the manager there and arranged that. That would reduce the landing fee to $5 but that still sux.

I decided to drive to KSPG. It's almost the same distance to drive from my house to KCLW where my 7 is located.

It was a good meeting with 39 people in attendance. Many from other chapters where in attendance and were willling to help chapter 47 get reborn.

Default Glad the EAA Chapter is reviving, but, on KSPG fee?

I can understand how an FBO operator can charge a "ramp fee" for space they lease, from the city, but do not understand how they can charge a "landing fee" for the runway? ---- maybe just a misuse of terminology?

Anyway, when I fly to use the restaurant, I just consider it a "cover charge"!

Take care,

Ron
